Publix offering COVID-19 vaccines in Florida, 148 Georgia locations

Publix is continuing to ensure the public obtains access to the COVID-19 vaccines.

To start, the Lakeland, Fla.-based retailer announced that its pharmacies at 148 Georgia locations will be offering the vaccines to eligible individuals.

Available by appointment only, and while supplies last, some locations included in the previous distribution are not included at this time, the company said.

In addition, beginning March 8, Publix Pharmacy locations in Georgia will have vaccines available to pre-K through 12th grade educators and staff, as well as adults with intellectual or developmental disabilities and their caregivers, and children with complex medical conditions.

In Florida, Publix will provide vaccinations to those who qualify under the state’s expanded eligibility criteria.

Vaccines will be administered to adults under the age of 65 years old who are extremely vulnerable to COVID-19, according to a physician, healthcare professionals with direct patient contact, resident or staff of long-term care facilities, individuals age 50 years old and older who are firefighters, K-12 school personnel, sworn law enforcement officers, and individuals age 65 years old and older.

To make an appointment in either Georgia or Florida, qualifying parties should visit the online scheduling system at Publix.com/CovidVaccine.
